Bruce County Hazardous Waste Collection Events Cancelled

Bruce County, Ontario: Bruce County has made the difficult decision to cancel specific household hazardous waste collection events. Residents are asked to properly store their household hazardous waste materials until the program can continue and materials can be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.

The following household hazardous waste collection events have been canceled:

May 2, 2020: Southampton Public Works Yard
May 9, 2020: Kincardine Public Works Yard

“We’re taking this measure to limit the risk of coming into close contact with other people in public areas,” said Miguel Pelletier, Director of Transportation and Environmental Services. “This is the time to stay at home, practice social distancing and help flatten the curve of COVID-19.”

Bruce County will continue to advise the public if additional collection events are canceled in the future.

Bruce County urges all residents to stay home, to practice social distancing, and to practice proper hygiene protocols outlined by the Provincial Medical Officer of Health: https://www.ontario.ca/page/2019-novel-coronavirus.
